7th Grade Math: Mr. Chris Devlin
Unit 6: In these chapters, your student will learn how to find the area, surface area, and volume of 2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional solids. Some of the skills your student will practice are: Identifying similarities between prisms, cylinders, and pyramids; Finding the area of 2-Dimensional polygons; Finding the volume and surface area of prisms, cylinders, pyramids, cones, and spheres; Solving real-world problems involving prisms, cylinders, and pyramids, cones, spheres, and composite solids.

7th Grade Accelerated Math Pathways: Mr. Chris Devlin
Your student will learn about the Pythagorean Theorem. Some of the skills your student will practice are: Using the Pythagorean Theorem to find side lengths in triangles; Using the converse of the Pythagorean Theorem to decide if a triangle is a right triangle; Solving real-world problems involving the Pythagorean Theorem; Using the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems involving three-dimensional figures, including finding volumes of solids.

Your student will also learn about geometric transformations. Some of the skills your student will practice are: recognizing translations, reflections, rotations, and dilations; drawing the image of a figure after a translation, a reflection, a rotation, or a dilation; finding the coordinates of points after a given translation, reflection, rotation, or dilation.

Finally, your student will learn about congruent and similar figures. Some of the skills your student will practice are: Applying the concepts of congruence and similarity; Recognizing that if two figures are related by a translation, reflection, or rotation, then the figures are congruent; Recognizing that if two figures are related by a dilation, then the figures are similar; Describing transformations that demonstrate the congruence or similarity of two figures
